  1. Sultan of Sokoto na only you waka come this world. That is why una dey put una women for pudah.

    Na so i see one wey carry his wife inside car, use ninja cover all her body including her face, and the horseband na fine man oo

  2. Isookay!!! No interesting NEWS today

    *Runs to get cucumber for stephysofynsojuicy*

  4. For the first time Dr Emmanuel uduaghan actually is making sense....they should not complicate issues for Mr ibori ooo not after regaining his freedom

  5. #Making mistakes is something everyone does. Learning from them is not*

  6. -Nasir El-rufai should guide his tongue. He must learn to filter his words before unleashing them. What a deadly allegation capable of inciting hatred and possible retaliation from the southern Kaduna. He should take the responsibility as a leader to return peace and coexistence in his state and not otherwise.

    -UK media giant Blomberg has said it long ago and I partly believe their analysis that president Buhari is Nigeria's problem in the first place and hence can't be the solution. He is silent in so many case within Nigeria but would offer consoling message to victims of the same circumstances in other country. He might not be the right one for us.

  7. This Sultan of Sokoto should STFU, if he had nothing good to add to his existence. Must every law be Islamic or follow Islamic law......Abeg......Nigeria is a secular country.....
